Above-average cannibal exploitation film from director Sergio Martino delivers on the required over the top excesses of the genre. Fast-paced with better acting than you usually see in these kinds of movies, especially from a slumming Stacy Keach. Great fun for fans of Italian exploitation.
The best cast ever seen in an Italian cannibal movie. Surprisingly for this kind of usual low-budget drivel the movie has gorgeous cinematography and is competently shot in the jungle but it is hard to stomach the real animal killings and the brutal gore and sex scenes. Still, this is probably the best this genre will ever get.
